Re: Developing NCC-1701's Apex Class [3D]

Just a suggestion:

How about lifting the round part up a bit, so that it looks more like a ceptre: circle centered on a cylinder.

And the backside with that, lets call it "foreskin" , maybe just have it rounding up, so like a hemisphere, because this extra bit looks a bit strange and starfleet usually builds ships which are economically sensical, i.e. no unnecessary decorations and stuff like that.

But arpart from that I think it's perfect if it gets windows and writing onto it. Will you put it into a spacey background?

Unnecessary decoration?! How do you know it doesn't serve a function?
For the end of the nacelles I was trying for a variation on the ball at the rear end of the Enterprise nacelles, but a little more primitive looking.

All in the fullness of time. I've been distracted by other things lately, but I'm not giving up on this.

Thanks for the input friedebarth.

Re: Developing NCC-1701's Apex Class [3D]

For the aft nacelle caps, I suggested to NCC-1701 that the cowls should oppose each other, much like the design of Zephrem Cochrane's Pheonix in "First Contact". This would help to give this class of vessel a distinctive look.

Re: Developing NCC-1701's Apex Class [3D]

That's an interesting idea, Wingsley. The thing is, wouldn't that tend to hide the detail/structure of the caps from most views? I like the thought of doing something a little different... hmmm, I might put my own spin on your idea.

The reason I suggested it is because the structure of this ship seems to make it a more or less direct descendent on ZC's Phoenix... or the NX-Alpha.

Re: Developing NCC-1701's Apex Class [3D]

Just a little update...

MadMan1701A recently started a new pseudo-JJverse thread on a very similar vessel he calls the Starship Archon. Think of the Apex, but as if it were Kelvinized.
